Congratulations!  You've reached the website of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association, with churches in 31 cities of southern Los Angeles County.  Welcome!  We exist to Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip the leadership of local churches, empowering them to make disciples and launch new churches and ministries.  We are here to empower our pastors and church leaders to run their RACE--Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip!


SIG Alert!

40 Weekdays of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."  

Day 15 – Matthew 18.19-20: Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.
Pray that not only will we understand the importance and power of secret and solitary prayer, but also the importance and power of public and united prayer.
Pray for Rev. Sung Lee, seaport chaplain at Long Beach Seaport, and his wife Myung and family, the Pacific Seafarer Church he pastors, the other chaplains he has trained, and the ship shepherds he has trained, as they minister to the crew members of tankers, freight, car transports, and bulk ships that come into the seaport.  Pray for chaplains to reach the Los Angeles Seaport.
Pray for the Rhema Word Bible Church, their pastor Rev. Trevor Johnson, his wife Loretta, their church leaders, and congregation.
Pray for the city of Lynwood, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
Pray for courage and God’s protection as we spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

The cross of Christ is in itself an offense to the world; let us take heed that we add no offense of our own.  —C. H. Spurgeon

It is not the will of God that any perish (be damned), but that ALL come to repentance, as 2 Peter 3:9 says.  Not all will be saved, but that is not God’s will.  His will is that all come to repentance (and so be saved).  1 John 2:2 says that He Himself is the propitiation (sin offering) for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for those of the whole world.  John 3:16 says that God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have eternal life.  Romans 8:29 says those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.  Therefore, the elect are those whom God foreknew would believe if He gave them the faith to believe.  We find them by sharing the Gospel with everyone.  —Richard Graham

One great power of sin is that it blinds men so that they do not recognize its true character.  —Andrew Murray

Everything we do in our organization is either keeping alignment with the vision or it’s derailing the vision.  —Jenni Catron, The Four Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership

Great leaders develop other leaders.  —Jenni Catron, The Four Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership

Resolution One: I will live for God.  Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.  —Jonathan Edwards

Today's churches are either risk taking, care taking, or undertaking.  —Paul Chappell.  I (Terry W. Dorsett) think the same thing applies to denominational mission organizations such as the one I lead. In ten years, some will be stronger than ever, others will be gone, and some will continue to cling to the edge of survival but will inevitably cease to exist. Time to take some risks and see what God does!

To say that we are sorry for our sins is mere hypocrisy, unless we show that we are really sorry for them, by giving them up.  —J. C. Ryle

I’m not suffering from anything that a good resurrection can’t fix.  —D. A. Carson

You don’t know the God who created you.  But He wants to bring you to Him, and share Himself with you, so you will.  —Richard Graham

Fear is to the devil what faith is to God.  —unknown.  And each of these says to their respective one, “Sic ‘em!”  —Richard Graham

Spend enough time among the wealthy, and you’ll learn that no one really considers themselves to be rich. The farther up the ladder a person climbs, the more closely they guard their progress — this is why true generosity remains a virtue that’s almost entirely practiced by the poor, for whom any small sacrifice constitutes a greater slice of their overall worth.  —Tom Blunt

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.   —Albert Camus

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.  --Ronald Reagan

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.  --George Washington

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.  You are already naked.  There is no reason not to follow your heart.  --Steve Jobs

Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.  --Bill Gates

The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.  --Henry Ford
